Foodservices Consultants Society International (FCSI) deploys INM’s Reach eLibrary product for its online publications library

Through our digitizing partners we were able to get all of FCSI’s documents scanned, processed, indexed and online in a matter of weeks.

Integration New Media, Inc. (INM), a leader in the digital publishing industry, today announced that Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI), the worldwide leader in foodservice and hospitality consulting, has chosen Reach eLibrary for the deployment of its new online resource library.

FCSI is using Reach eLibrary as the foundation if its new online library that will roll out to its members on May 3rd, 2011. The FCSI eLibrary will provide a variety of content to members in more than 46 countries worldwide, including full searchable access to over 70 back issues of “The Consultant”, the association’s global magazine that keeps members up-to-date on the latest developments in the foodservice industry trends, technological advancements, and emerging market segments. The eLibrary also includes articles, charts, white papers, sample documents and other reference documents aimed at assisting the membership of FCSI with their business practices.

“We’ve been looking to create an online eLibrary for several years, but we hadn’t found the right solution or partner to work with,” said Scott Legge, executive director of FCSI Worldwide. “We don’t want to try to replicate content that is available through other online resources but FCSI felt it important to capture content specific to the business of consulting in the foodservice and hospitality industry, for the long term sustainability of our organization. This new member service also fits perfectly with FCSI’s mission – ‘To promote professionalism in foodservice and hospitality consulting while returning maximum benefits to all members' and our catch phrase 'We Share, We Support, We Inspire'”.

“We’re very pleased to provide FCSI with the technology to power its eLibrary,” said Jason MacDonald, Reach ePublishing product manager. “Through our digitizing partners we were able to get all of FCSI’s documents scanned, processed, indexed and online in a matter of weeks.”

Reach eLibrary is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) product that is designed to help publishers create rich, searchable libraries of digital documents. Documents are securely stored and fully indexed, so readers can access and view them, but publishers retain control and ownership. The application’s customizable cross-document search functionality allows readers to easily search for content and view results immediately on-screen. An embedded document viewer, based on Reach Docs technology, makes reading content online simple and comfortable.
